The collapse of American Values?

For many years we have been hearing about the decline of our society, if you are interested in history that is a pattern that is worthy of your interest.  We hear words like tolerance and phrases like “cant we all just get along” the reality is that for the most part No we cant all just get along.

There is one thing that we all have in common, it is a small thing really but we are all human, we may not speak the same language, we may not like the same foods, but we all laugh the same and we cry the same.

We experience life in the same ways, though for some of us in vastly different circumstances.

We try to do the best we can but sometimes we fall short.

Biased Elections

Over the last several years we have seen a trend in the media that creates a problem in the electoral process.

Consider this, the media can influence the outcome of an election because of how they choose to cover that election and the candidates that are running in that election. 

If only one viewpoint is presented is it then a fair contest?

Can we have legal elections if the media influences the outcome of an election by using psychological tactics to promote one candidate over another one, even perhaps promote one candidate that cannot win and then later turn on that same candidate and influence the voting public yet again, they might even be able to profit from this process.

The real question then becomes “should the media be directly involved in influencing elections?”

Should the media be accepting advertising dollars from corporate clients that have a direct interest in the outcome of an election?

When this happens, you have some real conflict of interest that might even be close to being a crime…

When you think about how often this happens, and how opinion then becomes a powerful psychological tool to help produce results and influence the outcome of an election then you have to ask the question should a law be passed to prevent the media from participating in an election by using psychological phrases and depicting a candidate in one way or another to attempt to influence that election process.

A great example occurred on Fox news just recently, when a bobble head, made a statement to the effect that a particular candidate might have not been telling the truth during a debate, now there was no direct evidence that this comment was true, however this bobble head, made the statement anyway even though they had no method of proving what they said, the problem was that the net result was that this bobble head created doubt in the minds of the viewing and voting public.

This “Bobble Head” caused an event to take place that cast doubt on this candidates ability to get elected, now that is interfering with an election.

This candidate may not be able to win votes, in the future because this media figure used psychological tricks to develop a doubt about this candidates ability to win an election, now that is just wrong, and this happened on Fox news, so perhaps it might be accurate to say that a media organization that participates unfairly in an election in this manner should be shut down because they have ceased to be a news company and have become instead an unauthorized participant in the election.

For years the media has been doing this type of thing and for the most part, they have gotten away with it, but it may be time to start a process to refute this practice and stop them from attempting to influence the American Electoral process.

The media should report the news.

The media should not make the news.

The Media should develop good reporting practices.

The media should not develop opinions with the intent to influence the way voters see any particular candidate.

People are not anywhere near as dumb as companies like Fox news think that they are and so it is time for the media to report the news and stop trying to derail a candidate based on opinion alone that is wrong and a law should be passed to prevent the media from making a profit when they do this, in fact they should be fined a big big fine, (more than they take in for advertising for that same time period) that would stop this insanity and create a real election again, because we have not had a fair election in a long long time.

It is time for the news media to step back from the brink of insanity.

As anyone will tell you when you actively engage in deception using psychology in this way, the result is insanity and it is wrong.

Advertisers, can no longer be allowed to pay a news company to influence the news that is just wrong, and it is evil.

Fox news is just as guilty as many of these other news companies have been in the past, and that is just as wrong as what these other so called news companies are doing now, when a so called “reporter” fails to report the news or fails to question a biased statement by a guest that is also wrong.

Two wrongs do not make a right, and it is time that the media “wake up” because this is not what classic journalism is about what the modern news media is all about is influencing elections, that is wrong, there is a difference between news, entertainment, and advertising, when a news company engages, in all three, and does not distinguish between these different methods of media, that is also wrong.

Bias in the media is a horrible thing because it take from citizens the right to make up their own minds, when bias rots the core of the media you cease to have a real reporting news company and you have a state run media, that is wrong.

The fact is that for more than 30 years the media has been doing this unquestioned, it is time that they stop doing this.

State of Florida Vs Casey Anthony Again?

Warning….  You might have been brain washed by the media?

It is possible that the media has “invented” the girl that everyone loves to hate, by using psychological words and phrases.

Ok here we go again, a judge has ordered that Casey Anthony appear in a Florida Court to serve probation even after receiving many death threats, and also the premise of this alleged bad decision by the judge might actually lead to a risk of life for this woman who is hated universally if you believe the media bias that is.

Should the state of Florida be made to pay for her security that she will need?

Should the state of Florida be sued if Casey Anthony is murdered because this judge has tried to enforce an unfair process, allegedly.

So what about it, should the State of Florida pay for the Security services of body guards, which is likely to be more than 150 thousand dollars a year, just so she can serve probation in a county that arguably the most dangerous place on earth for this hated girl that by the way the media seems to have made guilty beyond any doubt.

 So what is the responsibility of this state to keep this woman safe?

Does the state of Florida really want this kind of risk because the risk is real and the threat is real, one thing for sure, you have to really seriously consider this when thinking about moving to the state of Florida, who wants to allegedly live in a state that is so vindictive anyway?

Who would want to live in a state where so many court cases allegedly are consuming so much of the tax dollars of citizens of Florida?

When you think about it, there have been several cases where the state of Florida went after subjects when they did not have enough proof to substantiate the charges…

What this allegedly means to you is that you might be on vacation and get stopped while you are having ice cream and end up in prison?

Media influence biased

Is the media trying to influence how you think?

Are they trying to influence what you eat?

Is the media attempting to influence every aspect of your life?

Some people are concerned that we no longer have a free media in this nation, perhaps that has been the case for along time now however, before the Internet, knowledge was limited. 

Just like back in the 1950s the average reading age of an American was much lower than it is today when a much larger percentage of the population can now read, knowledge has changed and the way we learn has changed with computers, you can choose the type of knowledge that you are interested in learning.

From websites to ebooks and even portable readers, like the kindle or the ipad, which can carry movies, articles, audio books, and more, however it appears that the media has not factored this into its news coverage and so we see a lot of what must be termed, (allegedly) bias in the media because they hope to try and influence the thoughts of people who are free to do and to think as they want.

That is a serious problem, because when you try to control the freedom of a people you will not find it an easy thing to do, which explains some of the behavior that you so often see on some of the more liberal news companies.

It is frankly disturbing and it is something that should not be even allowed, but that same freedom again is what made this nation great, the media seems to have forgotten where its bread is buttered.

Who do you think supports the media?

If you said Advertisers, you are only half right, the real supporters of the media are the people, because if people stopped buying products that are advertised on media outlets then there would be no need for advertisements.

When the media attempt’s to influence the thoughts of people using keywords and phrases or even subliminal programming or using words and actions of Bobble heads, then you have a conflict of interest.  Advertisers just want people to come and to buy their products, however over time the objective of some news companies has not been advertising but influence.

That is a real problem to the freedom of the press as a whole.

Think about that the next time you buy a product you have seen advertised on a network that thinks less of your than they do the agenda of thought control and influence.  When you have someone whispering in your ear that the sky is purple, over time you will come to believe that the sky is in fact purple, or is that really true at all?  We know that some media companies believe that this is in fact true, that if they tell enough lies, if they tell you the lie, enough times, that you will eventually come to believe it.

The thing is that discounts human will, and that is a strong thing, we know from science and from history those that “think” they know everything often end up lampooned on the petards of their own devices.  It is something to consider simply because over the last four elections there have been numerous attempts by the media to influence the outcome of an election in favor of one political party, in fact we have seen that funding from the public has been used to support some media companies that tend to only present one point of view, now that is not only wrong, but it is against the spirit of the American people.

Yet, we allow it to continue, when a people are pushed too far eventually they will not accept the wants of the lessor power.

We have free will and that is something that no media company can take away.
